Keep my pictures there, which means it's also on my two desktop Win 7 machines, my Win7 laptop, and on my Win 10 laptop. Multiple backups automatically.

Don’t know where to start but I’ll try .

Job one is finish my bathroom , which involves tiling the tub surround and leveling the floor before I put down the linoleum .

Next is the adjacent room. Drywall the walls , then pull the carpet and probably add a layer of ply, then install linoleum.
It’s an office computer room, and I keep breaking those plastic mats you put under your chair , so I think a hard floor is the answer .
I have to build a computer desk, as I didn’t store the last one . Kind of kicking myself ,as it was a corner desk and very well designed.

Then it’s time to start insulating and installing plywood on the walls of the garage once and for all .
Although I may have to weld up some mobile bases for my heavy equipment first , as there hard to move otherwise .

Then after that it’s time to build a 4x4 Pro router table from cncrouterparts .
I’d like to get my laser engraver functioning again once that’s built .
Gee I almost forgot I have to build my Incra router table also .

After that I’d like to remodel my gym, drywall it and install the stereo , paint equipment to the new colour . I used 3/3” plywood for the walls, and I think drywall would look better .
I’m a little worried that wood inwall speakers will make the wood walls resonate to much, so I think drywall is the answer .

Next I want to rebuild my stereo rack in my living room and also build a new cabinet to hold the centre channel
After that I’ll probably take a long nap


Heres a pic of what my computer room used to look like .
The next photo shows the desk in the basement as I was experimenting with a dual monitor setup, as it’s mostly going to be used for photoshop and vectors etc.
Unfortunately I can’t find this style of desk anyone , and will have to build one similar . It will be better regardless after I make one myself.
Plus I’m going to build a second section and extend the desk all the way to the wall on the right anyways . Will be kind of a big L shape

My projects are seldom "planned." They mostly just "happen." Planning sounds too much like work.

Wouldn't have a clue how to do that. And, most of the photos I save are off the web, for research. When I got my van I want thru my camper file and discarded 317 pictures. Those were all vans, kept about 6 modded truck pictures - once the van is finished, a small 4X4 pickup, for treks down to the beach for some surf fishing, and stay in it a night or 2, or to haul a fishing boat. I can save pictures off of my phone, but it is slow, slow, slow, and the quality is usually lacking.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

Windows Explorer has a preview plane. I plut my camera memory chips into the USB, open a window on it and it shows the pictures. I can rename them, delete the bad shots, move them around. For manipulating them I generally use Irfanview (free). My phone has some special software that lets me access the memory card with Win Explorer. Easy, fast.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Thanks Tom. Windows Explorer didn't do it, but Files Explorer seems to have done it. Don't actually know what I did and how, but got instructions printed out, so should be able to duplicate it. And apparently I can save pictures too, but by that time was getting a bit of brain burn, so passed for now. And Irfanview never showed.

This will save me heaps of trouble. Just before my computer fouled up, again, I am pretty sure I had figured out how to size my saved pictures, so when I print them, the will come out almost exactly the same size as my finished designs for my cane handle designs. Actually most of my handle designs are simple enough I can freehand them in less time then it would take to glue down a finished design. But there are some that are detailed enough it would take a LOT of time to draw them out hours in fact, and maybe count on making them accurate. This way (when the method is perfected) I can print the designs out on paper that will literally become invisible when glued down. This will make precise handles time after time.

Still experimenting on this, but found out a bit ago that printing on certain papers, then gluing them down, the print stays, but the paper can't be seen, unless you look very closely. The first success was using some toilet paper, the commercial type, from my local grocery. I have experimented some since, but then the compter foiled me. Now I can get going on this again.

But was able to relax a bit earlier. Watched what may have been a very entertaining documentary I think it may have been, title was Mad Monkey Kung Fu. Very educational.

wife wants this that she saw in a woodsmith recently. she has a bit of time to decide if she wants cherry or oak. my backs been kinda wonky and i havent been out in the garage since before christmas . i havent used my stile & rail set in 20 years but will use that on the doors with a 1/4 ply panel. the plans call for a 3/4 panel and tongue and groove frame that gives it a flush look. that might be too heavy. i cant see adding birds on there either

Finish setting up my new shop. Just moved into a new house, with dedicated shop space (not in the garage!). Full story and photos to follow (in a couple of months, time and budget permitting...)
